Great food but check your bill!!
Lovely little venue and we really enjoyed our curries, we had the pre-theatre menu and I couldn't fault the food!
The reason for my 3 star review is for 2 reasons which are being overcharged (twice), and the tables are incredibly close together so much so that you do feel as though you are dining with the people on the next table.
With regards to the being overcharged, the bill that arrived was hand written I had a quick look but the waiter already had the card machine so I didn't have long to look (felt like a deliberate trick), after I paid I also to double check an item that I had seen is the bill was higher than what I would of expected.
I queried one of the hand written balances that had no narrative apparently it was a service charge, which didn't really make sense as it didn't feel like 10%/12.5/15% of the bill. Even if it was right it was cheeky because the card machine asks you if you would like to leave a tip so at this point I realised I had tipped twice. The waiter did correct this for me and returned my tip in cash from the register.
Once i left the resteraunt I then realised despite spotting the 'service charge' my bill had been added up incorrectly either they didn't use a calculator or it is a deliberate tactic as they assume most people won't review their bill.
Great service and excellent food. When paying the bill I did not appreciate being asked if I would like to leave a tip though.
Great place and Athmosphere!
Typical Indian restaurant with everything in order.
Our advice: Go!!!
Lovely elegant restaurant, perfect location, delicious authentic food and great cocktails. Fantastic service, will def. return.
Great food and service you won’t be disappointed superb
This meal was part of our Wedding Anniversary celebration. The food was lovely, we will definitely be back when we’re next back in London
Excellent meal last night. Highly recommended good menu great prices
Excellent food including a number of interesting dishes not usually available at standard Indian restaurants. Good location very close to Gloucester Road Underground Station and a short walk from our hotel. Will go there again when we are next in the area.
Fantastic, helpful and friendly staff, amazing food, great service. Best curry
Good and prompt service. Enjoyed the dining experience.
Realy tasty food and good service, although some of extras, rice Nan were a little expensive.
Delicious food, beautifully presented. We opted for the tasting menu and were very happy with our choice.
Good food, great decor service not helped by masks and shortage of some products as had only been open a week from lockdown! But would definitely go again
We really liked your restaurant. The food was delicious, the interior was beautiful, and the service was excellent.
First time here, visiting from the Midlands and decided to try this place out.. It didn't disappoint... Nice food, Nice place, Great friendly staff.. Overall would highly recommend this place..
Superb food, cooked very well excellent service. Would go again
Best bombay aloo I have ever tasted! Very reasonable for location. Good range of authentic dishes. Would definately recommend.
Good Indian restaurant. Attentive service and good food.
Took my adult daughter and niece out for dinner. All three of us thought it fantastic.
Food is not amazing and the ambience is quite boring
Amazing food, I would go again.
Beautiful restaurant, friendly staff and excellent food
Sorry..but the food was not good and well prepared..
An average all-round restaurant. Service can be slow. Check the bill. They will add service charge.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, with very good service (particularly from Anam) and a lovely ambiance. The food was very good quality but fairly small portions. We will, however, return in the future.
A 5 course prix fixe menu WITH drinks for under GBP 60? Amazing food, extremely attentive service, luxurious atmosphere? Count me in!!
Excellent food, tasty, not 'greasy Indian '. Excellent team, friendly and helpful. Very good value for money, and will definitely come here again
Perfect service, perfect place and food too much.
This was a fantastic experience. Everything was perfect; all five in our party had the tasting menu and were blown away by it! The food was unlike anything we'd ever had, the courses all started out as works of art and proved to be every bit as tasty as they looked. The wine pairings were perfect. The service was impeccable. It was Christmas night and it was indeed a special occasion in all respects. Thanks!
Food and service average at best
Ivery good Nice Place to be good fine tasting food, we were the nexc evening agian recarfs Ruud grom Holland
The staff were amazing and the food was out of this world. The place is the best I have ever been to for an Indian meal. Absolutely loved it
The food was excellent but pricey for what is was. We booked a table for five several weeks before and were disappointed to be seated in a corner, with no access in or out (for either waiters to access the entire table or guests to access the toilets). The table wasn't actually ready when we arrived (no side plates). Due to the very congested seating, the waiters couldn't actually deliver our food or remove our plates without help from us by passing all our dishes to the end. This was poor and we were still charged £20 for service charge.
Everything was really good. Very disappointed with Maruf. We asked a couple of questions and he was quite aloof and not really interested. He got a bit more friendly towards the end when he wanted to review him. Then went back to being not bothered. Other than him the meal was excellent
Service slow .food average .cost high .service charge added to the bill
Beautiful food. Lovely friendly staff, warm and Cody.
I visit London every year and this is my second yr booking this fab restaurant
Service on that day was horrible, staff wasn't friendly before the payment we had another waiter who got us a bill so he was smiling and even talking to us a bit but it was all about leaving a good review about he's service.
But food was very good!
Condition of this place is required a refreshing.)
Fabulous tasting menu. Wonderful flavours delicately presented. Great service in tasteful surroundings who could want for more?
Quite good on all points. Not as outstandingly delicious as it was in 2015.
Very good food, good selection, a lot of the classics but also quite a lot that you won't find on other menus. Service is good, not overly attentive but pretty quick and responsive. It's a small restaurant so worth booking in advance to secure a table.
